Jo Ziebritzki


Jo Ziebritzki is a doctoral candidate in Global Art History, advised by Prof. Dr. Monica Juneja. Since October 2019, she is a member of the Graduate Programme in Transcultural Studies at the Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies (HCTS). Her doctoral research is funded by a scholarship of the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes. In her research, she explores the art history and historiography of the 19th and 20th centuries through the lens of transcultural and gender studies.

Jo Ziebritzki is a founding member of the DFG network "Wege - Methoden - Kritiken: Kunsthistorikerinnen 1880-1970" (2020-2023) and the research group with the same name at the Ulmer Verein. From 2013 to 2017, she was co-editor of "Reciprocal Turn: Platform for Art Theory and Artistic Practice" and a member of FAK - the Feminist Working Collective Karlsruhe. Before joining the HCTS, she studied art theory, philosophy, and scenography in Karlsruhe and Berlin.
